The Developers Guide to the Business Data Catalog

Brett Lonsdale & Nick Swan have recently completed the book ‘The Developers Guide to the Business Data Catalog’.  This BDC Book has been written to help our customers and the community to use BDC to its full potential.  Lightning Tools offers Web Parts and tools including BDC Meta Man and BDC Web Man that helps create the Application Definition File and Web Services for BDC.  However, before now, there has not been a book which is purely on the BDC.

Our book contains chapters including: BDC Search, Security, Business Data Field Type, The BDC Object Model, OBA, Web Services and more!

The book is available to purchase on the MEAP program from Manning.  MEAP is an early access program that allows you to purchase a copy of the book electronically prior to the book being published.
